SmartLab Toys Review and Giveaway


The summer time can be so rough, not only keeping the kids busy and happy, but making sure they don't lose everything that they learned in school the year before. No one wants to sit down and do formal schooling so we try to think of fun ways to learn. Recently I was given the chance to review a great science toy from SmartLab Toys. The Extreme Secret Formula Lab has brought us no only hours of fun over the last week but encouraged my children to use their minds. 
With fun experiments like glowing slime and rock candy, I was able to reach out to every little scientist in my family. The directions are super easy to read which was great because my 9 and 7 year old got to take turns reading. Not even knowing that it was good for them. We used basic household items(plus the included glow in the dark powder) to create glow in the dark slime first! After fighting about who was going to put in what no one wanted to be the first to touch it.lol

Everyone ready to do their part!

Pouring in the first ingredient!


They all decided since he got to mix it he had to touch if first.lol
We have our rock candy making and plan on making a new experiment today! With over 20 different things to try we will have a summers full of fun, but today it is glow in the dark alien blood hehe. What a fun opportunity this has been. I can't wait to check out some more of their products. My oldest has already requested a few for his birthday.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless.
She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
